Mother’s Day at Tong Yang Plus SM Bicutan

I was not able to celebrate Mother’s Day last year because we were in Norway. Unfortunately, Norway celebrates Mother’s Day every February so I’m the only mom who wants to celebrate Mom’s Day at that time. This year, we’re just here in the Philippines so we had a simple celebration of Mother’s Day. 

We had lunch at Tong Yang Plus last Saturday. We all know that restaurants are always fully booked every Mother’s Day so I decided to celebrate it in advance. I tried Tong Yang Shabu Shabu and BBQ Restaurant last December, we had a get-together there with my college friends. I am satisfied with my dining experience so I was hoping that they will have a branch near our place.

After few months, I’ve learned that there is Tong Yang Plus in SM Bicutan. Yey, malapit na sa probinsiyanang katulad ko. Though it is quite far pa rin, I think it took us an hour to reach SM Bicutan because of SLEX traffic. I remember that Tong Yang SM Megamall are not accepting reservation, so I did not make any reservation at SM Bicutan, but when we get there. I saw some tables that were reserved so I guess it is better to call and reserve.

We arrived at 12NN and we’re happy that they are able to accommodate us, no more waiting. Yun nga lang share kami ng table sa iba. Our table is good for 8 persons so may katabi kami na ibang family dun. Good thing, tahimik naman sila. Hehehe! 

I like the interiors of Tong Yang Plus SM Bicutan compared to SM Megamall branch, mas maliwanag kasi and mukhang mas malaki. There is enough space for each table, nung nasa SM Megamall kami, we always have to say “excuse me” every time tatayo at kukuha kami ng food kasi hindi kami makakalabas, ganun kaliit space nila pag occupied na yung magkatabing table. 

I also prefer their table because there is one grill and 4 stoves so each person can choose their own soup, same with Four Seasons Buffet and Hotpot City SM Southmall branch. For soup, you have 8 choices. You can choose Laksa, Chicken Soup, Sate Soup, Sinigang Soup, Malatang Soup, Vegetable Soup, Seafood Soup, and Chinese Herb. 

I checked their different stations and I was sad because I did not see fresh shrimps and beef bulgogi, yun kasi favorite ko kainin sa Tong Yang Megamall. But I saw ebi tempura, wala naman yan sa SM Megamall, yun nga lang pahirapan din makakuha ng ebi tempura, lagi nauubos. 

If you are hungry and don’t want to cook, don’t worry because they have cooked food, salad, dim sum, and dessert. They also have sliced meat choices but you always have to order. Wala sila talagang nakaprepare like sa ibang buffet restaurant, yung ready na and kukunin mo na lang. With Tong Yang, you have order and wait so nagkakapila pa. For sliced meat, they have Beef Chuck Eye Roll, Beef Karubi, Beef Striploin, Pork Neck and Pork Belly. 

Drinks are already included in their buffet rate and you have a lot of choices. I also saw beer in their Beverage Station. 

I just ate here few months ago and there is already a price increase, from P645 to P688. Though I’m not sure if the rate varies per branch or magkaiba pa ba ang Tong Yang sa Tong Yang Plus? Service is okay naman, matagal lang sa billing.

  1. Nice place, we usually go for buffet restaurants on special ocassions and we cant decide on what to eat. Buffet type restaurants has a meal planned for everyone. I like Tong Yang too because its affordable with year round discounts.

    1. Yes, affordable compared to other buffet restaurants. :)

  2. We enjoyed our experience din at this branch last month. Sobrang nabusog kami and to think I wasn't even able to try the cooked food section. Sobrang sinulit namin yung four stoves kaya iba ibang timpla kami ng noodle soup. Haha!

    1. Same here, I prefer cooking and grilling foods, except for the ebi tempura. :)
